Additional information

LOYAL SUPPORT
Found an army of fans from around the world. Spells his name slightly differently to fictional Game of Thrones character Brandon 'Bran' Stark but that has not fazed fans, as the other Starc jumped his way to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games final. Even Athletics Australia used the hashtag #HouseStarc to drum up support for the Olympic debutant (finished 15th in the final). (smh.com.au, 16 Aug 2016)
